Lovely lofted condo in the heart of Capitol Hill
This bright and airy condo in Capitol Hill features a bedroom, a bathroom, a lofted flex space and 704 square feet in the heart of the Capitol Hill. One of the city’s most iconic historic conversions, this home is on the fifth floor of the Trace Lofts, just steps from Seattle University, the Pike/Pine corridor and all the hot spots that make the neighborhood so sought after. Built in 1919, the building’s brick exterior and terra cotta detail ring true to that era. Before it was converted to condos in 2007, the building operated for decades as a Bekins Storage warehouse.
Located near the buzzing intersection at 12th Avenue and Madison Street, unit #507 provides a balance of modern updates and historic charm. Western light filters into the property, reflecting the warm tone of the wood floors and kitchen cabinetry. Industrial details, like exposed brick and steel, provide juxtaposition to the reclaimed, old-growth timber lining the vaulted ceilings.
Inside the home, an urban-style open bedroom and bathroom are located off the entry. From the bedroom, a steel ladder leads to a bonus lofted space that’s big enough for second bed, lounge area or workspace. The bathroom boasts a full-size bathtub with subway tile surround and plenty of space for linen storage. Further inside, unit #507 opens into an open-concept kitchen and living area. Two sets of French doors overlook the bustling neighborhood below, as well as provide access to your private balcony—an ideal spot to enjoy a moment of peace and a hot cup of coffee in the a.m. Meanwhile, the kitchen provides plenty of counter space, plus dark wood cabinetry and stainless appliances.
